Chronic fatigue syndrome, officially called Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) is an epidemic illness. It is

associated with chronic Epstein-Barr virus infection. Other viruses such as Herpes, CMV seem to also play a role in the illness. No specific causal factor has been identified and it is as yet unclear whether these viruses seen in association with CFIDS are causative or merely opportunistic. The symptoms may include: overwhelming fatigue, chronic sore throats, swollen lymph nodes, depression, poor memory, fibromyalgia and sleep disturbances.

Injection therapy

Engystol N is one of the main remedies for all viral diseases, i.m., s.c., i.v.

It may be used in conjunction with Echinacea compositum S, Traumeel S, and Lymphomyosot for injection therapy.

Other remedies that may be indicated depending on the symptom picture are: Apis-Homaccord

Belladonna-Homaccord Hepar compositum Cerebrum compositum

Homoeopathic mercury also has an antiviral action and is found in Traumeel S, Mercurius-Heel S, Osteoheel S, Cruroheel S, Angin-Heel S, and Naso-Heel S.

Therapy to support the pituitary-adrenal axis is important. Cortison-Injeel and ACTH- Injeel may be used as injection therapy twice weekly.

Nosode therapy may be helpful, particularly when a particular agent is found in the clinical picture. These may include Herpes simplex-Injeel, Herpes zoster-Injeel, Hepatitis-Injeel, Grippe-Injeel, Fluor albus-Injeel, Trichomonaden-Fluor-Injeel, Vaccininum-Injeel, Variolinum Injeel, Diphtherinum-Injeel, Psorinum-Injeel, Tuberculinum-Injeel, etc. The Nosode should be administered in accordance with the principles of regressive vicariation.

Catalyst therapy may be particularly useful in the condition. Impairment of the intra- cellular respiratory cycles can be inferred by the symptom picture associated with CFIDS.
